"Bard College is truly a place to think. Nestled in the picturesque Hudson valley, Bard is an oasis for coming into your own and learning alongside driven, curious, and creative students. It has a unique spirit to be sureits not a place for those who like the comfort of conformity or to sit quietly in the back of the classroom. Small class sizes with a round-table format allow for lively debate and discussion, where students learn as much from each other as they do from their professors. Bards version of a thesis is called the senior project, in which last-year students work on an individual intellectual or creative pursuit for a full academic year with the support of an advisor. This project is the culmination of a track of classes in a department or spanning departments called a focus, much like a major. While Bard doesnt have many requirements, students are required to take a certain number of classes in specific disciplines. There are enough choices that its likely you would fulfill this obligation without thinking too much about it. Bard is close enough to New York City that it is possible to engage with events and resources that the city has to offer. The surrounding area has a lot to offer culturally, too, as a result of this proximity. If yoe are interested in art, theater, music, or culinary arts, youll find it in troves. If youre interested in competitive sports or greek life, youll want to look elsewhere!"

"This was an interesting experience and different from other colleges. Bard is very small, and to succeed you need to be a self motivated learner and student."
